Blackbird

Music by Paul McCartney

Originally Performed by The Beatles

"Blackbird" is a song by the Beatles, but performed as a solo effort by Paul McCartney, from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as "the White Album"). The song was written by McCartney, though credited to Lennon-McCartney. McCartney has stated that the lyrics of the song were inspired by the unfortunate state of race relations in the United States in the 1960s.

Deke Sharon : Pop Classics

"Feel the Earth Move" is one of rock's most iconic women's songs (from Carole King's Tapestry), this pulsing, rhythmic arrangement incorporates elements of doo-wop and contemporary a cappella beneath a barn-burning solo. Vocal or other percussion optional. The Beatles greatest modern folk/pop song "Blackbird" is finally available for SSA groups, with the melody moving between vocal parts and interspersed elements of counterpoint and 3-part harmony. The number #1 song from the Footloose soundtrack "Holding Out For A Hero", sung by Bonnie Tyler, was one of the biggest songs of the 1980s. Bombastic and fun, it's a great feature for a female soloist, and makes a great show closer or encore. he Andrew Sisters had a hit in 1947 with the lighthearted, playful ditty "Too Fat Polka" that's more relevant now than ever!

Songlist: Holding Out For A Hero, Too Fat Polka, I Feel The Earth Move, Blackbird

139th St. Quartet : Collection : 00  3 CDs

139th St. Quartet : Collection

One of the prize Barbershop compilations of all time by the legendary 139th Street Quartet, "Collection" is a winner for lovers of the finest Barbershop Harmony in the history of SPEBSQSA. The quartet was formed in 1975, and got its name from the address of Pete Neushul's factory building in LA, deciding to let the group make the name, instead of the name making the group. Four different lead singers, Jim Meehan (1975-78), Larry Wright (1978-88), John Sherburn (1988-91) and Dan Jordan(1991-present) contribute at least 10 songs to the grand total of 64 songs on this 3-disc set (which are, oddly, numbered 1, 3 and 9). Within 2 years of its founding, the 139th won a silver medal at the SPEBSQSA Internationals in Philadelphia, and regularly did well in competition, for instance scoring bronze medals in 1989, silver in 1990, and bronze again in 1991. Appearing on TV for the first time in 1985 on the first of several episodes of "Cheers," this was quickly followed by an episode of "Night Court." They were also very fortunate to record with the legendary Neil Diamond, who sang lead with the group on a song for each of his Christmas recordings, both of which went multi-platinum, "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen" on disc 3 is one of these tunes. The group wrote several of its own tunes, including "Best Times I Ever Had," "Now Here You Are Back Again," "My Dear Old Irish Mammy," as well as original words, intros and bridges to many other songs. Anyway, the liner notes are thick with Barbershop history and comments by the guys, and the music is all a cappella except for a couple of tunes like "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do." It's very hard to pick a favorite with so much great material, so we're going to go with the "Theme Song From Cheers." Sit back and enjoy about 3 hours of tunes by one of the great Barbershop quartets of all time!

Songlist: Bowery Medley, Wait 'Til The sun Shines, Nellie, Bach's Fugue (In D Minor), Down By The Old Mill Stream, 1927, Don't Put A Tax On The Beautiful Girls, Jean , I'm Just Wild About Harry, A Girlfriend Of A Boyfriend, Lulu's Back In Town, My Mother's Eyes, My Dear Old Irish Mammy, Good Old Zenith, Blackbird, I Get Around, It's Better To Leave Them Alone, Didn't We, I Got Rhythm, Kid's Song (Coney Island), My Alabama, French Medley, Daddy, You've Been A Mother To Me, We're Shovin' Right Off For Home, Sing An Old Barbershop Song, Jump Into My Mammy's Arms, I've Got The World On A String, Crazy Worlds, Crazy Tune, The Best Times I Ever Had, Money Makes The World Go 'Round, My Romance, and more

Beachfront Property : Beachfront Property : 00  1 CD : CR 1848

Beachfront Property : Beachfront Property

This nine-member ensemble has selected fourteen wonderful songs for their debut CD (about half are accompanied) featuring arrangements from Joe Finetti,Phil Mattson, Michele Weir and Gene Puerling. The first track, "The Flintstones Theme," complete with Fred's "Wilma" holler, wins over the listener immediately; "Blackbird," sung a cappella, is rendered as a sort of jazz hymn, fleshing out the progression with counterpoint and extending the phrases. "Embraceable You" becomes three dimensional, it's so depthful. "You Go To My Head" has become something of a signature tune for Beachfront: the richness and texture of the Singers Unlimited, without encumbering the essence of the song with unnecessary ornamentation. Terrific.

Songlist: The Flintstones' Theme, Blackbird, Hurry On Down, Embraceable You, Born To Be Blue, You Go To My Head, Ring-A-Ding-Ding, It Had To Be You, You Made Me Love You, The Summer Knows , My Kind Of Girl, Sophisticated Lady, I Remember You, Wave

Canvas : Finally

Canvas is Lisa Eve Knight and Jennifer Sharon, sopranos, Karis Pratt and Jocelyn Markey, altos, Dave Doody and Cason Swindle, tenors, Karl Hillstrom, baritone, and James Bacher, bass; they're from Seattle and this is their first CD. This is a fun-sounding, versatile group of singers, who are equally comfortable in several genres. Pop, the upbeat opening ABBA cover, "Take a Chance On Me," an ethereal Beatles' "Blackbird," Harry Belafonte's "Jump in The Line," "Over The Rainbow," Choral: Billy Joel's sweet classic, "And So It Goes." Jazz, "Conjunction Junction," "I'm With You," Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean a Thing" an incongruous "Let It Snow," an appropriately crazed "The Simpsons Theme" and the classic "Twisted." An impressive debut CD, and we look forward to even more colorful vocal brushstrokes on the next Canvas!

Songlist: Take A Chance On Me, Conjunction Junction, I'm With You, Blackbird, Jump In the Line, It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), Twisted, And So It Goes, Over the Rainbow, Let It Snow, The Simpsons, Take A Chance On Me, Group Version

Clockwork : Tesseract    onsale

Bay Area favorite, 4-man, 1-woman vocal jazz group Clockwork surprised a strong field with a win in the 2004 Bay Area Regional, then went on to place 2nd in the National Finals, making many friends and new fans along the way. "Teseract" is Clockwork's debut CD (on PAC Records), produced by The Bobs' Richard Bob Greene. There are 11 songs, all with cutting-edge arrangements, particularly by group member Stephen Saxon (also including Greene and group members Angie Doctor and Jim Hale). Herbie Hancock's sassy "And (So) What If I Don't," (There's some nice alto sax on this one, otherwise "Teseract" is all a cappella), a cool, jazzy "My Baby Just Cares For Me," Lennon/McCartney's classic "Blackbird" (with actual Red-winged Blackbird sounds), and a rainy-day bluesy "DC Farewell." "Donna Lee" segues perfectly from the laid-back "Back Home Indiana" to Charley Parker's scattish, driving jazz standard, Radiohead's "Creep" runs the gamut from quiet to crazed, and jazz standard "Rhode Island Is Famous For You" features a bright, upbeat lead by Doctor. Clockwork nails John Coltrane's frantic, driving "Moment's Notice," slowing down with perfect control for Richard Rogers' moody "Little Girl Blue," and then taking off on some very nice vocal riffs on "Variation #1 on (J. Williams') 'Nightwatch" and finishing up with the con man's anthem, a bluesy, appropriately smarmy original by Jim Hale, "Big Cash Deal." We loved Clockwork live, and "Teseract" is poised, confident proof of their readiness to join a cappella's vocal jazz elite!

Songlist: And (So) What If I Don't?, My Baby Just Cares For Me, Blackbird, D.C. Farewell, Donna Lee, Creep, Rhode Island Is Famous For You, Moment's Notice, Little Girl Blues, Variations #1 on "Nightwatch", Big Cash Deal

Gents : The Gents in Love

Dijkstra: it gives me great pleasure to present this CD, which appears in response to repeated requests. At last we have taken the opportunity to record this repertoire. How often we have had to disappoint members of the audience when we tell them that, unfortunately, there are no recordings available for the arrangements of Billy Joels Lullabye or Toni Wines Groovy Kind of Love. Here they are at last! Also included are three beautiful songs from the popular Dutch group BLF. The goal of this CD is to evoke the simple joy of singing. In my opinion, it is this quality which, in addition to or even in spite of our attempts at perfection and flexibility, is the most important to convey to an audience, and it is a quality which The Gents always try to express.

Songlist: Michelle, Lullabye, Blackbird, And So It Goes, With A Little Help From My Friends, Misschien niet d e Eeuwigheid, Omarm, Dansen aan zee, Londonderry Air, The Oak and the Ash, Molly Malone, Ca' the Yowes, The Turtle Dove, Hey Jude, If I Fell, A Groovy Kind of Love, And I Love Her

King's Singers : Six

After years at the pinnacle of a cappella choral music, the King's Singers show no sign of slowing down, as their creativity and number of appearances throughout the world remain undimmed. In what has been described as their 3rd generation, "Six" is a tasty sampler spanning the life of the group since their founding in the explosive rock decade of the 1960s. The spiritual "Down In The River To Pray" appeared in the movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", arranged by Singer Phillip Lawson, who also arranged this sublime cover of Billy Joel's "Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel)." Lennon/McCartney's "Blackbird" is one of the most-requested encores in the KS' live concert repertoire. "The Wishing Tree" by former Divine Comedy member Joby Talbot, was commissioned by the KS and the BBC. Irving Berlin's moody jazz classic "Blue Skies" is sung in a cool and reflective arrangement by Singer Richard Bennett. The final cut is a soaring, surreal arrangement of Neil Young's deathless, "After the Goldrush," which takes our breath away and leaves us wanting to hear much more. One forgets just how exceptional the King's Singers are, until one is able to see them live, or one settles back next to the stereo in a comfortable chair and lets the beauty of these "Six" wash over him like a subtle, perfect tide.

Songlist: Down to the River to Pray, Blackbird, The Wishing Tree , Lullabye , Blue Skies , After the Goldrush

Pastiche : Pastiche

Pastiche is Sandy Cressman, Jenny Meltzer and Becky West, attractive, versatile singers with their roots in jazz, but who incorporate Brazilian and Afro-Cuban rhythms as well as pop and R&B influences in their music. Fair warning: Pastiche, which means "a combination of many styles and influences making up a single work of art," is accompanied throughout by a very fine jazz orchestra. That said, the trio's vocal harmonies are brilliant, and each song, from song 1, "Don't Lose Your Cool" to song 11, "When The Night," are showcases for that brilliance. A smooth, smoky, moody work of art!

Pieces of 8 : Falling Together

On "Falling Together" the four men and four women of jazz octet Pieces of 8 have picked some of our favorite music, turned arranger Charles Mead loose on it, and come up with a very special CD. It's all great stuff: "Bye Bye Blackbird," Lennon & McCartney's "Blackbird" and "When I'm 64," Rodgers & Hart's "You Took Advantage of Me," "You Don't Know What Love Is," Leonard Cohen's "Bird on a Wire," Cole Porter's "I Concentrate on You," "Kansas City/Route 66," Andrew Lloyd Webber's "I Don't Know How To Love Him," "The Price of Wisdom" and Leonard Bernstein's "Somewhere." Mead's unconventional arrangements require singers with incredible range and versatility, and Pieces of 8 handles them with ease. There's not a weak track on the CD--"Falling Together" is a saucy, jazzy, gem!

Songlist: Bye Bye Blackbird, Blackbird, You Took Advantage of Me, You Don't Know What Love Is, Bird on a Wire, When I'm Sixty-Four, I Concentrate on You, Kansas City/Route 66, I Don't Know How to Love Him, The Price of Wisdom, Somewhere

Princeton Tigertones : A Night Out : 00  1 CD

Princeton Tigertones : A Night Out

In weary reaction to the horror of WWII, a group of thirteen men under the leadership of Henry C. Parker III (Class of '48) joined in the joy of close harmony. The Princeton Tigertones, founded in 1946, soon outgrew the confines of the immediate Princeton area and began travelling to entertain at the women's colleges along the east coast and in the social clubs of New York city. Shortly after their founding they toured Bermuda and this helped establish the fifty-plus year tradition of world touring. Along the way their distinguished record finds three Carnegie Hall performances with another planed for 2001, alternate summers entertaining aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2, and performing world tours during which they have sung for many world leaders. The group also established the habit of recording every two years, this being their twenty-sixth recording and a continuation and tribute to the tradition begun more than half a century ago. On this eighteen song recording we are presented with a combination of lively renditions such as the opening tune, "Good Ol' A Cappella" and lovely arrangements of slower moving work such as Harry Conick's "Heavenly," "Shower the People," and one of our favorites, "Walking in Memphis." Along with the more contemporary offerings are fine arrangements of "Mood Indigo," "Loch Lomond," and "Georgia on My Mind." You can look forward to some intricate arranging for the seventeen voices of this male chorus, accentuated by fine solo voices. This is an excellent recording of collegiate contemporary choral music. You'll have to discover for yourself the unannounced "secret track" at the end. We won't spoil the surprise!

Songlist: Good Ol' A Cappella, Heavenly, Kiss 'Da Girl, Loch Lomond, Lord, Got Tomatoes, Blackbird, Me & Julio Down by the School Yard, East of the Sun, Bring It on Home, Georgia On My Mind, Take 2, So Much in Love, In the Still of the Night, Mood Indigo, Candy, When Sunny Gets Blue, Walking in Memphis, Shower the People

Realtime : Take 5

Based in Vancouver, Canada and Bellingham, WA, a very talented pair of brothers, Tim & Doug Broersma and Mark & Tom Metzger, form four part a cappella quartet Realtime, who have been singing together since 2003. They quickly placed 2nd in the Harmony Sweeps Pacific Northwest Regional in 2004, then they became the 2005 International Quartet Champions of the Barbershop Harmony Society in Salt Lake City! Having reached the pinnacle of the barbershop world, they stopped competing in Barbershop contests. However, they continued to compete in the Harmony Sweeps, winning the Pacific Northwest again in 2007, and again in 2010, where this supergroup is an early favorite to win the upcoming National Finals May 15th! Listening to their jazzy, wonderfully arranged rendition of Dave Brubeck's jazz standard "Take 5" underlines the group's determination to "sing and record music of many styles, whatever (we) decide we like!" What Realtime likes includes 13 diverse selections, Lennon/McCartney's pop hits "With A Little Help From My Friends" and "Blackbird," "Over the Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz, the Tennessee country anthem "Rocky Top," The show tune "On A Clear Day" (You Can See Forever), the scattish jazz favorite "Flight of the Foo Birds," the haunting spiritual "Follow the Drinking Gourd," and the Doobie Brothers' foot-tapping rocker "Listen to the Music." The last two cuts, "Funny Valentine" and "Georgia On My Mind," are harmoniously performed with the Whatcom Symphony Orchestra. "Take 5" is great stuff, the rock-solid harmonies and pure entertainment chops of this gold-medal-winning Barbershop group, joyously applied to some of our favorite tunes in other genres. Listening to it, we can't wait to hear Realtime at the Finals!

The Swedish Barbershop quartet Ringmasters was founded in the fall of 2006, and they immediately were named "the young talents" in Barbershop circles. In the summer of 2008 they won their first International Gold in the Bank of America Collegiate Quartet Contest. And in 2009 they surprised the world at the Anaheim BHS Internationals, tying State Line Grocery for 4th Place. That marked the first time that a non-US group had placed in the top 10! "Live" is a limited edition, live recording of 8 songs at the Swedish venue Nybrokajen 11. Don't be too surprised to hear beautiful women's voices join Ringmasters (what a great Barbershop name!) on "Live," they are joined by Swedish Folk a cappella quartet Kraja on two cuts, "Come In and Stay Awhile" and "Limu, Limu, Lima." The other six tunes are Simon & Garfunkel's "Baby Driver," "Lazybones," Lennon/McCartney's "Can't Buy Me Love" and "Blackbird," "Blue Skies" and "Yes Sir, That's My Baby." Ringmasters have a fresh, powerful sound that obviously delights their live audience in addition to us. The Swedes are coming, and you really should hear them!

OK, so they didn't spend big bucks on the cover art. The bottom line is, Sixth Wave is great! First a sweet cover of the 5th Dimension's "Grazin' in the Grass." Listen to the scat singing on "Gimme That Wine," and you'll wonder why we didn't classify SW under Jazz (we're still on the fence on that one). Then we're treated to the soaring melodies of "Icarus," our favorite cut. Oingo Boingo's "Stay" will have you boogying to the rock-solid vocal percussion. Then a moody, Vox-One-ish "Vincent" features a stellar lead by soprano Cindy Bourquin. Boogie time again with "Pick Up the Pieces," with guest vocal percussionist vitamin g, and great scat by baritone Gary Rosen. 4 Beatles tunes: A jazzy "Blackbird" flies circles around everyone else who ever recorded the song. You'll see "Baby You Can Drive My Car," "Tell Me Why" and "Yesterday" in a whole new light. We loved "Cloudburst," the final tune. Not surprisingly they won the LA regional, and you can see them at the Finals May 5th. Fresh, surprising-you'll love this CD!

Warblers : Glee Presents The Warblers

We don't have to explain who The Warblers are to the millions of you who have been religiously DVRing Glee since this Prime Time a cappella (well, actually sometimes accompanied) phenomenon hit the airwaves a couple of years ago. McKinley High's charismatic, angst-ridden New Directions ensemble has to take on any number of challenges in their quest to (a) survive as a group against the anti-glee club forces at McKinley, and (b) win the regionals. The Warblers, from hoity-toity Dalton Academy are their nemesis, but this all-male, matching Ivy League blazered group are no slouches. The New Directions take them out at the regionals, but it's clear that rematches will be happening, and this 13-song Warblers CD shows just what the ND are up against! Some favorites are three with leads by Popular Glee star Darren Criss, Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," Train's long-running hit "Hey Soul Sister" and Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills;" Robin Thicke's "When I Get You Alone," Maroon 5's "Misery," a delicate cover of the Beatles' "Blackbird," a powerful take on Pink's "Raise Your Glass," Keane's poignant (accompanied) "Somewhere Only We Know," and tight vocal percussion and sweet backup harmonies on Barbra Streisand's "What Kind of Fool" and Rod Stewart's Disco hit "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy." But you don't have to be into Glee to recognize and dig a great a cappella CD-The Warblers have top-drawer arrangers and use the vocal chops of the Beelezbubs to absolutely nail every one of these songs. Just listen to songs like "Hey Soul Sister" and "Teenage Dream," and see why we love this CD, and are thrilled about what Glee is doing for a cappella!

Bobby McFerrin : Spontaneous Invention

This video was filmed for HBO live at the Aquarius Theatre in Hollywood in 1986, the year McFerrin won a Grammy - when he was at his first peak as a one man jazz band. It is absolutely marvelous to watch the energy and humor of this musical genius interact with an audience. On the CD you can hear "Thinkin' About Your Body" but you don't see the interlude where McFerrin suddenly starts improvising on someone's leather jacket. Watching him create "Bwee-Dop"using audience participation is very different from just hearing it (which is why it didn't make the CD), and there's no substitute for watching him egg on the crowd to do the hand signals in "Itsy Bitsy Spider," On "Fascinating Rhythm," his expressions are priceless as he emulates a 1940s jazz band. And his duet with/accompaniment to soprano saxaphonist Wayne Shorter is all the more astounding as you see the two of them lock eyes and minds. Of the 12 songs here, only four are on the CD. We highly recommend this DVD!

Songlist: Scrapple From The Apple/honeysuckle Rose, Bwee-Dop, Cara Mia, Fascinatin' Rhythm, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Thinkin About Your Boy, Drive , Opportunity, I Got the Feelin', Walkin, Blackbird, Manana Iguana, Don't Worry, Be Happy (music video), Good lovin (music video)
